Tea Length Wedding Gown / Lakeland Wedding Photographer

12 Apr

I have found my new favorite wedding gown designer:  Stephanie James.  I was looking around for wedding gown ideas for a modeling session I am going to be doing in a couple of weeks. The feel is vintage inspired and I thought a tea length wedding gown would be the perfect dress for this stylist shoot. Instantly, Stephanie James’s couture wedding line came up in my browser as I began to search. I instantly fell in love! They are feminine and sophisticated and so very vintage!


I wanted to share some images I found on Stephanie James’ blog.  All of these images are from her site and oh, so gorgeous! Don’t you just love them? Can I get married again and have one of these?

New Business Cards / Lakeland Photographer

12 Apr

I have just used up my last business cards this month and am ready to go a little fancier. This what what my old business card looked like:

This is fine. Clean. Professional. Informational. But I want my business card to show my work. If my images are already on the card, that allows people who see them without taking the extra step of going to my website. Hopefully this will leave them wanting to see more images and they will hop right on the computer and see more!  So, here is the front of my new, improved business card:

And here is the back:

I still need to make some more promotional pamphlets and fliers, but this is a good start. One day I hope my business will be large enough to hire a professional to design all of my business needs. Until then, I have me and my husband. We make a pretty good design team and that makes it all worth it!

This couple told me they loved to be together in nature. So that is what we did! As I am editing, I want to share every picture I see! Instead, I will simply share my favorite so far. Enjoy!

Stylized Valentine’s Shoot/ Lakeland Couples Photographer

3 Feb

I have been wanting to do this for some time, so I may not be able to contain my excitement!!!


I have had the privileged of photographing several stylized shoots and am hoping to do many more. It will take some time, but I hope to sway all of you to LOVE stylized shoots! Really! That is my goal!!

A stylized or theme shoot is a portrait session that centers on a theme (horses, nautical), time period (1940’s, flappers) or season (Easter, Halloween). It can be a little overwhelming to try to come up with a stylized shoot idea and even harder to narrow down what you should prepare once you have your idea! Do not fear! I am here to help.


This week I am featuring a stylized Valentine’s shoot, since we are in the month of February. This would be a darling shoot for anniversary pictures, engagement photos, or even a maternity shoot. Below is an idea board, to help inspire and start us off on the journey of stylized shoots.


Tell me what you think! I’d love to hear your ideas and thoughts. What stylized idea board would you like to see?

The Villian and the Damsel/ Lakeland Couple Photographer

28 Jan

This shoot was amazing! And I am not just saying that because this is my brother and sister-in-law! They had everything planned out: matching outfits, theme, props, locations, the list goes on and on. It was a photographer’s dream and I didn’t have to tell them to do any of it!!! I love you, Ben and Drew!


Anyway! I wanted to share these fun pictures that they wanted. I have tons more to share, but thought I would start with this series. My brother had a handle-bar mustache for these pictures and it adds so much. Drew’s vintage inspired dress and boots are perfect for her damsel role. Ben’s hat (from Disney), vest and trench coat add so much to make this serious of photos so believable. Do you feel like you are watching a silent movie? I know I do! They asked to do these and I couldn’t have had more fun! Enjoy!

The pictures say it all in this shoot! They are young, beautiful and in love. They were great sports! Justin lugged around the suitcase I had as a prop and Brittany trekked all over downtown in her very high wedges. All that work was worth it to capture these beautiful images! Enjoy!
